It´s for teas like this that I appreciate my water boiler with temperature control between 60 and 100ºC. To be brewed with water at 80ºC? No problem.
But, although it makes drinking white and green teas a lot simpler and straight-forward, I managed to forget about this tea for quite a while.
On the little card Whittard´s adds to the tea pack, it says the tea is “a supremely fresh and lightly fragranced tea with a hint of spring morning sweetness”. Indeed, in nose the loose tea is quite delicate with a sweet touch to it. In mouth it´s very easy going and light, nice enough without the grassy aspect of a lot of green teas, or the strength of most black teas. Honestly, I expected more from it.
